Lissa Broome and Suzanne Miglucci lead board diversity initiatives

March 2021
OnBoardNC and UNC School of Law Director Diversity Initiative announced partnerships with Equilar Diversity Network on International Women's Day. Equilar is the leading provider of corporate leadership data. The partnership is part of Equilar's drive to build the largest database of highly-qualified women and minority candidates for corporate board service. 

"The Director Diversity Initiative at the University of North Carolina School of Law is excited to partner with Equilar and expand the reach of the incredibly diverse talent we have in our database of potential directors," said Lissa Broome, the head of DDI. "So often we hear that organizations are committed to diverse talent, but don't know where to find it. We are so happy to join Equilar in helping to be part of the solution to that problem."

"As we are learning, Diversity, Equity & Inclusion are key tenants for acquiring and retaining top talent, building inclusive work environments, and improving corporate performance," said Suzanne Miglucci, Chair of OnBoardNC. "Until now, the challenge has been finding qualified, diverse candidates to lead from the boardroom. OnBoardNC is thrilled to join Equilar's Diversity Network consortium to close this gap with board-ready talent and help advance diverse representation." Click here to read more.
